Camping with Friends

Weekend before last we went camping with about a hundred friends.  (truely!)  It was SO much fun!!  I took a few pictures to show how beautiful it was.

Standing on the lawn in front of the dinning facility, see the lake?

A view of the 450 acre lake, that is the dam, which allows water to flow back into the river.

this is a small spot where the camp owners are making a beach on the river, its not quite done yet, but we still had lots of fun here with the kids.

leaving the river after swimming we drove through a pretty field of tall grass

the river on the other side of the dam

See these huge fish?  These are carp at the bottom of the spillway, they ranged from 2 feet to 3 1/2 feet long.

Saturday night my sister in law and some friends made biscuit donuts some with chocolate some with cinnamon and sugar

They were awesome donuts! 
The camp we rented was a boy scout facility, so there was lots of hiking and biking, and kayaking and tubing, and swimming, baseball, frisbee football.  There was lots of visiting as well, and cooking yummy foods!   We really enjoyed the weekend, tho I must admit, it took me all week to get the laundry caught up! I hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. I wish I had some of those doughnuts right now!!! Was the camping area in Virginia?

  2. I know, it does sound funny when you say you went camping with 100 people, I have done it for years. It isn't for everyone, but I enjoy it. I also enjoy the camping with just the two of us...

  3. Sounds like a great weekend, and it certainly was a beautiful location!
